For members of the Local Government Pension Scheme in England and Wales

Re-joining the LGPS

If you opt out, your employer is required to re-enrol you in the LGPS approximately every three years on a set re-enrolment date. They will only re-enrol you if you are an eligible jobholder.

If you opt out of the LGPS, you will almost always be able to opt back in again. You can opt in if you are still eligible to join the Scheme and you are under age 75. You will generally be able to opt in by telling your employer in writing. Contact your pension fund to find out if they have a form for you to complete to opt in to the LGPS.
